Karen Berman, Kristi Papailler

Utilizing local spaces in the community and community member interaction, students in Georgia College Theatre for Social Change classes and their partners in Early College, a program for at-risk teens, collaborate in active student engagement on health issues to create best practices for promoting engaged student learning. From performances at museums on the topic of race and education such as the Sallie Ellis Davis House, where an early 1900s African-American teacher began a local school, to out-of-doors performances at the Clothesline Project to advocate against violence against women, a diverse group of students engage members of the community to participate in solving social issues. The students themselves will demonstrate the product of this unique scholarship of teaching and learning method. Portfolio assessments of critical thinking are explored.This program will be helpful for students in and professors in all disciplines interested in community interactive engagement.
